My friend Karen Hoover mentioned today on my writing forum that she was going to honor her mother this month by writing something special she learned from her mom over the years. Since Karen’s mother passed away last August she knows there’s no better way to share her love and appreciation. She invited us to join her, and I think it’s a great idea, so every day until the end of the month I’ll be posting something special my mom taught me. These will be posted in no particular order.

Today I want to talk about faith. There have been some really tough things over the years, not least of which was her experience with breast cancer two years ago. Through everything she kept reminding me that she believed everything would work out. No matter how tired or achy she got she trusted in the Lord that she would be okay and that in time she would be able to resume her normal work again. She’s healthy and working like crazy again now, and she continues to work to strengthen her faith.
